Porcelain tile is one of the few completely waterproof flooring options available, which makes it a popular option for homeowners across Honolulu, Oahu, and beyond. Not only is porcelain waterproof, but it’s also durable, low-maintenance, and versatile. Porcelain tile will allow you to explore a range of different styles, from classic subway tile to wood-look tile.
Luxury Vinyl Planks
Many homeowners love the natural, timeless beauty that hardwood offers. However, hardwood can be damaged by wet climates – beachfront property poses a particular challenge. Fortunately, we have a solution: luxury vinyl planks! Since vinyl is a waterproof material, luxury vinyl planks won’t be damaged by humidity or water exposure. With a photorealistic printed layer, luxury vinyl planks are able to expertly mimic the appearance of hardwood (and a variety of other natural materials, including natural stone).
Natural stone tile is an excellent option for outdoor and water-prone areas of your home. When choosing the right natural stone, it’s important to look at porosity. The less porous the stone, the more resistant to water. Granite is one of the least porous natural stones available, which makes it an excellent option. For added water resistance, we will also seal and treat your tiles against water damage.
